It was kind of inevitable [stats; R]

Recently I've had to start using the Tidyverse. I resisted for a while, but everything its adherents have said are true: if you do a lot of data munging, it's set up very well to help streamline things so you can focus on other, more vexing data analysis questions (i.e. the analyses themselves, rather than figuring out how to get data into the correct structure for the analysis). I'd been using the 'plyr' and 'reshape' for forever, and they worked, but still. Thank goodness for the good people who recognized an unmet need and worked to fill it.

Now I have a feeling that markdown's going to be next, mostly because it's super-tedious to type and re-type tables. And it's also super-tedious to futz with things in Microsoft products.

It's mostly a question of when to learn it.
